Unit(s)

Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development

The Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development Programme uses the knowledge base of the ILO globally to design academies, courses and training packages. Training courses and academies focus on disseminating good practices and sound methodologies. Training draws on the expertise of the global team of ILO enterprise development and social finance specialists.

Sustainable Development Programme

Referring simultaneously to the broad definition of sustainable development adopted by the United Nations, which postulates an intrinsic relation between economic, social and environmental well-being, SDP takes as a more concrete starting point the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
